  4. I totally agree but whilst we all complain on the forum Toyota won’t do anything we all like there cars but the only way they will listen is for members to email and give them our preferred options. I emailed Toyota uk they didn’t answer at all, but a couple of days later me dealership rang me saying Toyota had been in touch . so they must monitor the forums. Anyway I am really looking forward to my new rav4 12/8/19 it’s been 5 years since I owned a petrol car

  19. Can anyone understand how an insurance company can reduce my premium by £70 ??? I added an extra driver my girlfriend it came to medical history Has DVLA been notified of any medical history I put No I carried on with the quote it came back £70 cheaper . The thing is she has had a stroke/ limited vision in left eye , never driven in 25years so she has a clean licence My partner will never drive any car again So how can they reduce my quote by £70? I know insurance cost come down with an older driver on . I was a named driver on my sons Merc SLK when he was a 18 yr old professional foot baller £300 reduction for him . That was many years ago Just wondering . Your thoughts please
